    There are various reasons for this to happen
    Some of them are:
    1)Lack of memory - While writing don't run more programs.

    2)If the source content is in Harddisk means more "Fragmentation" may cause this problem.
    so if necessary means de-fragment that drive and try again.

    3)One more cause for your problem may be your settings for that drive . Check whether it supports DMA if so enable DMA and try again.
